Research interests

I am interested in interoceptive ability (IA) and emotional facial expressions perception.

I have a strong interest in how IA relates to social cognition and emotional perception of one’s own and others’ emotions. I am particularly interested in understanding whether interoceptive and proprioceptive abilities have a causal role during others’ facial expressions decoding. I am also interested in the difference between good ‘perception’ and good ‘attention’ to visceral activity and which one of those factors is enhanced when subjects have high interoceptive ability.

Thesis title

The role of interoception and proprioception during the perception of others’ emotional face expressions
